The Daily Discipline of Writing

The internet is full of advice for bloggers!  Many would advise against blogging daily…..(I don’t know why you shouldn’t, except that it’s hard to do…).  But I can tell you that staring at the flashing cursor on your screen won’t get the job done! Thoughts are fleeting, inspiration comes and goes, and time flies by….and words you meant to record are forgotten.  I can think of no better reason than this to recommend the daily discipline of writing.

I also think that the daily discipline of writing is a metaphor for the work of living.  A very famous writer once said,

All the world’s a stageAnd all the men and women merely players;They have their exits and their entrances; — William ShakespeareAs You Like It,

At the end of the day can you say what you performed on the stage of life?  Can evidence be found a day, a week, or a year later?….or will all be forgotten?  It’s not always necessary to share your thoughts with the world,  but to write it with clarity of thought is a worthy discipline!

So from one blogger to the millions of bloggers out there I say, “Thank you for sharing your thoughts and  inspiration!  Keep on writing as you keep on living… step at a time!”
